"Nothing could do the job better, even if it were $100 and 100MB."
This is one of those little miracle programs(some of the free security applications at Steve Gibson's grc.com site are others). It gives several options for shutting down, logging off, or suspending the computer, and it works. It can even be run as a system service, and can force applications shut - a good feature if you have some not-so-well-behaved apps. Add in that it's 64KB and free, and it's a Godsend. Quit reading and get it!
